    Default Khonner's WIP

    Hello, I'm new to the forums and I want to try to improve as a painter. So I'm starting this thread. I'm currently working on some Trollbloods. The first up is my Fell Caller. I welcome any and all feedback. Thanks. Khonner http://www.coolminiornot.com/pics/pi...7cc56784bf.jpg

    Welcome I like your mini, nice and colourful reminds me of the 1980s GW paint jobs.
    Thin your paints down and build up the layers and keep up the painting!

    Appreciate your comment, how did you get the image to display? I usually use Reaper Master series paints in a 1 to 1 ratio with water, do I need to increase the water part? It's the slime green on his belt that's too thick, right? Please let me know if anything else is whacked out..

    I'm not familiar with the reaper paints so I'll let others comment on the level of dilution - although the red and green on the mini do look like the paint was slightly thick. I'd say that the your focus should be on contrast whilst keeping the blends smooth. If you you want the miniature to pop like the guys who are getting 8+ on CMON you need greater contrast. So far example on the skin on the arms it looks like there are two layers - the base colour and a slightly lighter grey. If you can work through a few more layers you can build contrast.

    Looks good. I would leave him alone now to stop the paint going chalky and show us the next Troll

    The skin tones and metallics are a great start. You seem to have a natural eye for those already. Also your brush control looks good and its a very clean paint job so you are off to a strong start. Keep with it and yes, push the contrast to exaggerate the details!

    Hey khonner, it's already been mentioned above but I feel the need to second it. Tamiya clear red is the ticket for blood effects, only way to go! A couple of things to go along with it are tamiya smoke (it's the same as clear red but in black) and a tube of regular uhu glue.

    The red on its own is too bright and though it works ok it isn't that realistic. When mixed with the smoke sparingly you get a far more realistic blood effect, I usually use about 1:6 smoke/red. To further the effects you add uhu, this gives some structure to the mix and let's you create dripping blood and lines of blood running between spikes etc. You can do similar effects with all of tamiya's clear line to creat slime, drool, whatever you can think of. I strongly suggest experimenting on sticks and such at first, especially with the uhu. The mix also cures very fast (minutes) so you don't have long to work. Make sure you plan where your going to apply it before mixing.

    I really appreciate the tips. I have picked up some of the clear red, but still searching for the Uhu glue locally. I only have found the glue sticks, so I'm thinking that I'm gonna have to order it online.
